    I kinda hope Megatron has the weaponiser gimmick like Cog. Pull Him apart and stick all of his bits on Prime to make a Guiltaur

    It's a long shot, but the original UK Transformers catalogue refers to Soundwave's tapes as SPY Cassettes

    Very comprehensive list, only thing missing is the quantities for each size class I.e 11 deluxes 3 leaders etc.
    I'm sure these were posted somewhere.

    Definitely. Hasbro's art seems to really be improving. I didn't really care for their Prime Wars art pieces, as they usually looked kind of flat and tended to have goofy facial expressions and proportions. This has excellent use of color and composition, and I love the looks of the robots themselves. It almost looks like a movie poster.

    Other than adding the aforementioned assumed (call them highly likely/rumoured for now) deluxe Red Alert & Wheeljack, plus the fan vote winners Impactor & Mirage to the above, there was listed for Siege:
    *10 Battlemasters
    *11 Micromaster patrol 2-Packs
    *14 Deluxes
    *6 Voyagers
    *3 Leaders

    Titan class wasn’t mentioned but appears to be highly likely (probably Omega Supreme) & obviously not counting exclusives.

    So we now know: All the Voyagers & Leaders (we should get a tease of the Titan at NYCC too, we have the last 2-3 years), 10 of the 14 deluxes, 7 of the 11 Micromaster patrols & 7 of the 10 Battlemasters. Not bad sleuthing considering the line hasn’t been released yet!

    But it seemed like that though. Well when it started at least.

    A trio of orbital cannons that make one big cannon isn't a bad idea at all.
    Only thing cooler I can think of to that would be an orbital anvil drop, but hey, that's not really a transformers thing. xD

    Would have to be reduced to closer to 26-32. While it's an awesome idea to have a wide range of combining collectibles, also have to keep it within reason as much as possible too. Over complicated and it becomes a pain to get them all or parts can get lost. Balanced within reason though, and it becomes fun. So definitely on the right track on that idea. With likely a way to enhance them. Like how a hammer one can be doubled up if it has a removable handle.

    Not all the relics need to be covered either. Some would be harder to do than others. Like Trion's book and quill is a weird one to do. Still possible, but is an odd one. And there are others that have more questionable natures to them than that. So that'd further reduce the number to a more manageable under 20.

    The forge and hammer, the sword, shield, and blaster are definitely at the top of lists to do though. With likely new interpretations again over time too. As since they are relics of the primes, they could transform per each era too.

    In many ways, a little bit like Thor's hammer with how it was hidden as a cane. Why wouldn't relics of the prime's blend in or hide in plain sight over time, and to when needed be discovered, and then later fall into obscurity again.

    While the Requiem blaster itself could start out as something hidden away with a series of Guardians as it was given up by Megatronus, the others don't have that kind of story(well, the star saber partially does, the hilt was broken off to become the matrix, but the sword itself was taken off world). And even that story for it could evolve. To each guardian may go their own choice of how to hide it, and how the legend evolves and changes. Especially if it was once discovered by "a lowly mining bot, that later became a gladiator." And possibly form scanned.

    In large part.
    It's always been kind of mixed I think, but I'll admit it was mostly reimagined at first whereas now it's mostly slavish.
    I still love classics Grimlock and Prime.
    The seeker mold was one of the more slavish designs and imo still the best looking and most fun chug seeker toy.

    The seeker design sculpt was slavish but I remember when it first came out starscream had a unique deco. Just thought I’d add that.
